Hardcore sunset from Moorea, an island off Tahiti. Very few touch ups. The color is as it was. Amazing.

Sony Alpha 100.

Good pic.
Too much darkness. Maybe good for a wallpaper. Artisticwise, maybe a little look up might have been better.

I thank you and I envy you

Almost perfect, and this happens quit often: The people, I really hate when people are present in a shot, too bad.

But once again, without them that's what I call a perfect wallpaper.

Mandibul, InterfaceLIFT is a wallpaper site, not a photography site. This picture is beautiful and works great as a wallpaper. Good job, JoeNobody!

@ knaim2 lolol he'll also be commenting on "[his] CS5".
I quite like this image, would love to see what those huts look like in daylight.
Works well as a wallpaper - enough area for any icons to sit without ending up blending in.

Nice one, Joe. Pretty cool looking.

@acid: LOL. Loving the strange inclusion of personal pronouns...!

Is this a great website, or what?
about 3 years, 11 months ago
Well... I am back... I don't have much time to elaborate on this work since I am busy at work but since my name has been brought up here I am.

This photograph is pretty good. Notice I said a "photograph" since this is a photograph anyway you slice it. Most of the work on this site are photographs but there are some digital art here as well. So trying to claim art for any over-processed or poorly processed "photographs" is ludicrous as it's been the case in the past! < I am not implying this to the above image though. I just wanted to clear up some confusion that has been in abundance here lately.

A photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic imager such as a CCD or a CMOS chip. Most photographs are created using a camera, which uses a lens to focus the scene's visible wavelengths of light into a reproduction of what the human eye would see. -Wikipedia

Regarding the photo here it's a great wallpaper. I am not concerned about the areas for my icons on the desktop since I don't like to have the sea of icons on mine and with Windows 7 there is not much purpose to have a ton of icons on the desktop IMO. The color is great here and well expected for a sunset but I personally I believe that this image is somewhat underexposed either by the camera or the user. Silhouettes are great when they can be used effectively in an interesting way. Silhouettes do not always work for every scene especially a busy scene. With silhouette images my rule is usually the simpler the better such as a palm tree and a sea but a palm tree forest would not be as effective. Therefore I believe this image could have been even more successful if it had a little bit more detail in some of the prominent objects. What would of been even more cool is if that sun was over the top of the edge of that rail. Good job though.

"A photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image..."

Dude, really? You're quoting Wikipedia to give us a definition of what a photograph is? Really?
about 3 years, 11 months ago
@ firefly... Yes! I do as it clearly defines what a "photograph" is. Anyone that went to photography school would agree. Wikipedia may not be 100% correct all the time but I have not run into any issues yet with it.

I suppose if you want to be stuck in the ice age with Merriam-Webster Online... go right ahead. With technology changing rapidly you can hardly rely on the old dictionaries anymore. Here is what will find in Merriam-Webster's.

Date: 1839
: a picture or likeness obtained by photography

It's fairly clear from the quality of JoeNobody's work that he knows the definition of a photograph and doesn't need one copied and pasted into his comments.

I love this wallpaper, silhouettes and all.
about 3 years, 11 months ago
@ jd554... I wanted to clarify this for you and Definition of photography was not meant for JoeNobody and he knows that. It was a reply to supaman and acid... as they stirred up the subject.

But again... it is possibly in some instances to create a digital art from a digital image based on the artist's experience and how successful he/she may be in producing such work. Art is a very broad adjective and what determines an art is not "cut and dry" I am not going to debate this since this is a very touchy subject and the one that is debated over and over.

@Igor: Actually, it wasn't the fact that you quoted Wikipedia that stuck out to me. It was the fact that you think that this community needs a definition of photography in order to gain some sort of better understanding as to what is submitted here. I don't know where you're from, but this is considered patronizing in the U.S. I don't speak for anyone other than myself, but I have to let you know that your comments come off as cocky. You may not intend for them to (and I certainly can see that you have lots of experience in the world of photography) but they do all the same. Lots of people who frequent this website are professional photographers, and many of us have been part of the IFL community longer than you - no one here is having a sudden epiphany due to your comments.

I don't think that you are rude, nor do I think that your comments are without merit. But I do think that you come off as cocky when you talk about how you own CS5 (I do too, by the way) and how you offer a definition of photography like no one knows what it is, but you do.

I didn't go to photography school, but I also didn't see that as a requirement of joining IFL.

LMFAO I LOVE IGOR

@ firefly... Once again I just wanted to clarify a few misconceptions that you have highlighted from my posts. I am not trying to be cocky or anything like that I was just stating my honest opinion as usual and nothing less. I don't know what tells you that I am a newcomer to IFL. Matter of fact I have been a member longer than I can remember. When I joined IFL it barely had any content and a handful of members and I have seen all sorts of drama here. This site became phenomenal and I am very grateful. I have been more silent in the past only posting comments from time to time under my old screen name.

What sparked some of my involvement is my obsession with the tropical scenery and those that know me call me a tropical fanatic. Being from Pennsylvania I absolutely love tropical images and I can never get enough of them and unfortunately there is not many of them here. I can never get enough mountains or ocean scenes either. I wanted to provide some helpful feedback to the community but unfortunately my comments have been misread by a few individuals who read between the lines.

Also, when I referenced CS5 that's what I currently have been trying out on a trial basis and I have been impressed with it's expended functionality and it's new and very powerful Adobe Camera Raw. There is no doubt that I will be purchasing it. Also I never implied that photography school was a requirement for anything. Formal education is great but it is not a prerequisite for anything here.

I just want to see more tropical images here. Bring them on Joe. Cheers everyone!

I've looked at your submissions...Which one are you claiming?

@Igor said "...Most of the work on this site are photographs but there are some digital art here as well. So trying to claim art for any over-processed or poorly processed "photographs" is ludicrous as it's been the case in the past!..."

A little tidbit, this was the same sunset from the first submission looking away over the little bay to the other side of the resort.

Igor, a little brevity goes a long way. And maybe a dash of modesty.

I agree with some of your criticisms, but your work doesn't come close to justifying your authoritative attitude. Leave the self-importance to amateurs like me.

Absolutely amazing. This photo should be commended, not criticized. Very well done.

Brizkit,

I've missed your presence here lo these many months. I also enjoy your prose.

I am still struck by those who say that this is just a wallpaper site, not a photography site. If this were only a wallpaper site, why do the submissions herein excite so much comment? With contributors such as Chris Gin, Dominic Kamp et al, I contend that this is de facto a photography site.

However you perceive it or define it, really isn't material. This site is simply a joy. What separates it from most other sites is not only the exceptional quality of work but also the high level of discourse. Deviation from that standard is not brooked lightly.

I'm more of a bluish fan. And while I am still tempted to keep both, I made my own copy where I changed the hue to bluish where it's just a little into the violet range where the moonlight comes down on the water as purple. I might even go a little more to the left and go for a more light blue / blue combo. Hmm I might keep all 3 of those.

Oh and the people aren't that hard to edit out considering the repetition of the image. Though I did get them out pretty okay, I put them back :D

I love sunsets and the shadows add an air of mystery.
